Being born in Canada: Advantages compared to the United States

There are several advantages of a Canadian passport over a US passport for your baby's future:

  1. Global Mobility: The Canadian passport provides access to more than 180 countries without a visa or with the option of a visa on arrival, allowing for much greater global mobility than a U.S. passport.
  2. Stability and security: Canada is renowned for its stability and security, which can be attractive to parents looking to provide their child with a calm and secure future.
  3. Tax Liabilities: When a child turns 18, being born in America, he or she will have to file taxes for life, no matter where he or she lives. Whereas in Canada, although a child may be a Canadian citizen, he or she does not have to file taxes until he or she earns income in Canada or becomes a permanent resident.
  4. Accessibility of medical care: Although both the U.S. and Canada have excellent medical care, if complications arise during childbirth or with the baby's health, treatment in the U.S. can be expensive. In Canada, however, the government covers all treatment costs, which is a significant advantage for parents.
  5. Quality of Life: Canada is often recognized as one of the best countries to live in due to its high economic stability, quality of life and ample opportunities for personal and professional development.
  6. Kinship: If you or your partner has Canadian citizenship or permanent residency in Canada, obtaining a Canadian passport for your child can make it easier for family ties and moving to Canada in the future.

All these factors make the Canadian passport an attractive choice for your little one, providing them with ample opportunities and prospects for the future.
